Default Invited to harvest nuisance deer.

A friend of mine has a modest orchard of apples, pear, and grapes, that has been being molested by some deer that are undeterred by the 10' chain-link fence, surrounding the property.

She has invited me to come over to eradicate... err... "humanely harvest" these vermin, on her behalf. She has lost at least 30% of her crop this year and wants the problem "dealt with". the other conditions are that I cannot use firearms as she does not want to alarm her neighbors who "love animals and think it's cruel to kill those cute deer" , and it has to be while her kids are off at school.


I've only ever hunted my own lands in VT and NH, where as the property owner, I could hunt year round as long as I had planted food crops.

Besides having a State Permit and written permission from the property owner, are there any other things I should be aware of.

This is in Tipton County, Tennessee.

Not too sure about how crop damage permits are used in TN (Smokes ?......) but depending on what hunt unit you are in depends on how many deer you can take. It's been a long time since I've looked at deer hunting in TN though, so make sure you look through the regs really well. Good luck!

You might check with the local game warden to see if there is anything your missing.

That'd be a 8 hour drive clear across the State, for no guarantee of a harvest...
But I bet I could swing a second permission letter.

And, as long as you promise not to laugh your @ss off at me for hunting with an old English long-bow /w cedar shafts and field points, (or a Genesis) It's all I can afford right now. Especially with the double permits required.
